ENVIRONMENT: meaning and examples

Good morning. 

Today's word is: Environment

Meaning 1: the conditions that affect the behaviour and development of someone or something; the physical conditions that someone or something exists in.

Example 1:
Ziggurat teachers try to create a pleasant learning environment so that students will not only learn, but also enjoy themselves in the process.

Example 2:
Over the last several months the economic environment has been quite negative.

Meaning 2: the natural world in which people, animals and plants live.

Example 3:
Pollution is causing a lot of damage to the environment.

In the right context, both yesterday's word (atmosphere) and environment can be translated to Spanish as ambiente; but as you can see they are not exactly the same.
